I've been so stoked to see Benji Galloway tearing it up on the bowl circuit, sticking to it on the Dew Tour even though it's not really his scene, entering a few vert contests here and there, representing for Grind for Life and other cool projects Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and totally embodying all my ideals about skateboarding with a skate everything/skate everywhere/love all things skateboarding attitude Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that I must have missed the memo: Everybody is supposed to be hating Benji Galloway.
Check out this interview from Automatic Magazine where Galloway The Hated weighs in on why everybody hates him, his beefs with Omar Hassan and Frank Gerwer, being banned from Thrasher Magazine by Jake Phelps, and how he earned the nickname "Session Killer."
Not wanting to rock the boat among the sk8blogerati, I tried to fall in step by working up some good Benji Galloway hatred this morning, but then accidentally came across his part at the end of this free Bacon video again and couldn't sustain it.
